    Chickasaw Trace needs YOUR help

    We need a few volunteers to take on adopt a trail sections at Chickasaw. Your responsibility would be to trim back weeds during summer. It only takes about 2 hours 3-4 times a year, and itís great cross training.

    Email chickasawtrails@gmail.com if interested.

    We are having a workday at Chickasaw on March 5th to get the trails ready for the classic.

    We will meet at the CCC Shed at the dump at 9 a.m.

    We will be building berms, fixing some bench cuts, flagging new trails, and maybe adding a jump or two.

    As always lunch will be provided.


    Mark you calendar for the June 4th workday. We are going to try to put in a pump track and skills section that weekend.

    Not sure what the turn out is going to look like. March 5th is the last part of the Snake Creek Gap TT. If I'm not busy I will be there on Jun 4th though.

    I would also love to be there but I will be at Snake Creek as well. You might also try a Sunday during the year for the guys that have to work on Saturdays.

    I absolutely love how you guys do the adopt a trail program and assign responsiblity to a part of trail to someone. I really wish every trail would do this and was just talking about that last weekend to a guy as I was riding out there.

    Can't wait for the classic hope the weather is good this year.

    Let me know when the work is scheduled for this year. I'd be happy to come out with my weed eater, and trim some trail. I've ridden enough, that I should chip in on the maintenance.

    Got back out to this trail yesterday. It's my favorite. Rode everything twice and the Black Forest Mtn loop a third time. Trail conditions are dry and chalky in most spots, so some loose corners but super fast and fun.

    I am in Thompsons Station and we get hit pretty hard with rain. In fact I even heard south of us in Spring Hill got it worse. So I would say Chickasaw would not be rideable today.

    Portions of the Trail of Tears and Black Hills at Chickasaw Trace in Columbia are being threatened by the potential expansion of the landfill that is at the park. There is a meeting of the Health and Environment committee May 1 at 4:30 at the Commission Meeting Room located at 6 Courthouse Square in Columbia. If you are available please come show your support for these trails. If you can’t come to the meeting please consider contacting the Maury County commissioners. Their contact information can be found here http://www.maurycounty-tn.gov/index.aspx?page=334
